The car began to move. I was elated and proud of myself. I knew that my happiness won’t last too long because I had to park the car at its original spot before my dad returns form work.

In I Am the Messenger, Ed Kennedy is saved from the “epitome of ordinariness.” Ed had no purpose prior to the messages. Ed did the same things every day for as long as he can remember, and he had no plans in changing it.

I did not want to leave either because I had such a fun time spending the day at Walt Disney World with my parents.

I learned to always wear a seatbelt. A seat belt saved my live, so I am making sure that I never get into a car without a seatbelt on ever again. Also, even though I was not driving the car, I learned that when I do start driving I need to always be cautious and aware of my surroundings. After the crash, I thought about how I could have died.

Ben Roethlisberger, past quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers, had publicly defended his right to not wear a helmet, while stating that he would “be careful”. Weeks later, Roethlisberger suffered serious injuries such as a broken jaw, broken nose, and concussion as a result of a helmetless motorcycle accident.

I knew then that I had to audition again. The whole process of trying out for Rangerettes helped me grow in ways I never knew possible. I am much more humble and I appreciate everything that’s given to me and never do I take a moment for granted.
